Performing Precarity I

To excel on the instrument, but to live precariously: This is what freelance musicians have always done. Now, however, the arts are increasingly calling the »masterful« into question. A project about the precarious as a principle of form and about giving up control over the musical situation.

Prize Winner Concert

for the Composition Prize of the State Capital Stuttgart 2021

Three prize winners, three different aesthetic concepts. The »tonal found objects« of the first prize winner Benjamin Scheuer, who tries to recreate sounds with various toys and sound objects, are often humorous, strange and full of extra-musical associations.


Works by Mikołaj Laskowski, Benjamin Scheuer and Francesco Ciurlo with Kilian Herold clarinet, Teodoro Anzellotti accordion, Peter Veale oboe, Ensemble Musikfabrik, Clement Power conductor

Performing Precarity II

At the end of the evening, the precarious leads to a post-apocalyptic situation: dream sequences between concert, audio play, music theater, text, modernism nostalgia and choreography.

Musiktheater hybrid ᵁᴬ

To understand our involvement in global structures, the actors start a mushroom expedition. With their hypothesis that the bizarre world of hyphae and mycelia could be the model for a better world, they also engage the digital audience in an adventurous hybrid game.

As if it were a figure with a thousand faces: thanks to the guitar’s innumerable possibilities (microtonal, agile, resonant, percussive, spectral, rhythmic, harmonic, melodic), Fuentes forms a gigantic instrument that »floats above a great labyrinthine sound space.«

SWR2 JetztMusik

Unfortunately, the SWR Vokalensemble had to cancel its participation in ECLAT due to Corona. The soloists of this concert have developed an alternative program with chamber music and juxtapose the two world premieres for trombone quartet with the nucleus of the originally planned choral work by Valerio Sannicandro, »Visio« for three violas. In three solo works for voice, the overtone singer Anna-Maria Hefele gives us the opportunity to discover the phenomenon of polyphonic overtone singing.
